My kids have this huge emoji obsession and my friends will tell you that I use them all the time in my texts. So we are all excited for The Emoji Movie, which hits theaters on July 28th! It looks pretty funny and I know we will be seeing it as soon as it comes out!
The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious hacker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each in its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before its deleted forever.
